Seth MacFarlane Knows A Million Ways to Die in the West


Seth MacFarlane“Ted” and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane is heading out west. The Wild, Wild West. Though given that this is MacFarlane we’re talking about, you’re probably not looking at a gritty Western like, say, the upcoming “Bone Tomahawk”, but more of a “Blazing Saddles” type of horse ridin’ Tomfoolery that mixes contemporary humor with a Western setting.

Or something along those lines.

MacFarlane and his “Ted” co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild have penned “A Million Ways to Die in the West”, which MacFarlane is set to direct and star in sometime next Summer.

No word on the plot of “A Million Ways to Die in the West”, but you can expect lots of racial, sexual, and otherwise “testing the boundaries of good taste” jokes if “Ted” and “Family Guy” are any indication. That’s just how he rolls.

Besides an upcoming gig hosting the Oscars, MacFarlane is also said to be working on a follow-up to his R-rated comedy “Ted”, about a teddy bear that comes to life. The film, starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, was made for around $50 million and was a surprise hit, raking in over $500 million worldwide. Not a bad haul for a comedy about a talking teddy bear.

    I enjoyed Ted and I actually think McFarlane doing a Blazing Saddles type flick would rock.
